In a clearly masculine culture of Punjab, the matrimonial alliance to a NRI is not just a matter of social honour but also a link to greener pastures for others in the family from the bride's side. Women who are made to feel upgraded because of these marriages when encounter the tragedy of fake reality not just find the going tough but also see the society and community largely absent in crisis. Most instances of fake NRI marriages affect women most adversely, both personally and well as socially. This is besides grave psychological implications of theses failed marriages. As we have seen the women who are at the receiving end of theses marriages suffer mental break down and are forced to endure complex psychological disorders. The present paper attempts to highlight the various coping strategies adopted by the wives abandoned by their NRI husbands.
